Flew Great - Then Motor Mount Broke Review by Dutch
Rating
The first flight was yesterday. It required no trim! At first I was delighted with its performance and its presence in the air. It looked good.

A club member asked me to do a low speed photo pass and I did. Then he asked me to turn it around and do another photo pass in the opposite direction.

When I throttled it up a bit to do a 180 degree turn, all hell broke loose! The airplane suddenly pitched down and then it had no power. I was able to maneuver it around some trees, but then I lost all control of it as it was settling down to the ground.

As I approached the airplane, I was downwind of it and could smell that characteristic burned electronic equipment smell.

The motor mount had apparently partially failed before the low speed photo pass and, if you zoomed in on the picture that was taken, you could see that the prop arc was pointed down instead of straight ahead.

When I throttled up, the motor mount must have failed completely and the prop and motor were only attached to the airplane by the motor’s three wires, which twisted up and probably shorted out the motor, which, in turn, burned up the speed control. The BEC in the speed control held on for a while before it quit too and the receiver lost power.

Waco ARF Review by Mr Bill

Good flyer, floats pretty good. Engine a bit week, would work better on a 1000kv and a 30amp esc. Motor mount easily breaks and replacements parts a to much money. Nice quality and detail. (Posted on 6/27/14)
FLEW RIGHT OUT OF BOX NO TRIM REQD Review by JERRY
Rating
All RTF say you will have plane ready by time battery is charged. That's a laugh but they all say it. Some Chinaman doing it over and over again most likely can. But it goes together simply. Very sensitive to elevator so don't over due throws at first. Won't stall just slowly sinks straight ahead, a real floater .I was afraid scale prop won't be very good, but flew great. Not for beginner, very aerobatic Would like to have bigger batt but don't think it would fit .Did not req any trim at all (Posted on 4/8/14)
